Y Not Festival can also share their huge comedy line-up, taking over the Flamingo Jack’s tent over the weekend. Headlining the Saturday is the hilarious stand-up comic MILTON JONES, known for his one-liners involving puns delivered in his deadpan and slightly neurotic style. On Sunday headliner EMMANUEL SONUBI will take the stage – the East Londoner started his comedy career only a few years ago, but has become a regular favourite on the live comedy circuit. Across the weekend catch sets from TAMER KATTAN, MATT REED, TOM WRIGGLESWORTH, SCOTT BENNET, KAZEEM JAMAL, KAREN BAYLEY and ANDRE VINCENT. Flamingo Jack’s will also see the beloved BARRIOKE FEATURING SHAUN WILLIAMSON, a DJ set from the one and only BEZ from Happy Mondays, plus THE AMY WINEHOUSE BAND, the musicians who used to play with Amy now performing her songs.
